This bozo can barely speak English. He's already scheduled to earn something like $50,000 per speech. Now he's going to "teach" students at one of the supposedly top Universities in the world?
- Richard M. Daley is taking the advice of the old adage, if you can't do, teach.
Days after Daley's 22-year tenure as mayor of Chicago ended, he was at the University of Chicago on Tuesday to announce he's joining the Harris School of Public Policy Studies as a distinguished senior fellow.
Daley won't be grading papers, but the dean of the school made it clear that the longest serving mayor in Chicago history will be teaching students what he knows about cities, offering a perspective they can't get from tweedy academics.
One might assume this is payback for favors granted over the past few decades:
- "At the University of Chicago we don't discuss pay for anybody and we're not going to break this rule in the case of the mayor," said the dean, whose private university version of `no comment' prompted Daley to smile broadly.
You would probably be 100% correct in that assumption.
